cleaver. emanuel cleaver. that is unfortunate and we wish that would not happen, but it is the rights people have. as you pointed out, there were police on the line so they can keep order towards a more civil society. let's hope that we can all get beyond this and all focus on what is in the best interest of america, what is in the best interest of putting the country back to work. how it is that we continue to build and grow middle-class and the constructive things we need to do. i think we have got to get beyond this issue that jobs are a democrat or republican issue. and to understand it is an american issue and we owe it to the people to make these kind of investments to continue cto have the country to grow and allow the people to earn a decent wage and send with clarity and certainty that they will not see their taxes go up because of an artificial bill where congress is planted in with one another as we reach the final deadline. ets --a couple tweak guest: if all the tax cuts and said, if the bush tax cuts were to sunset, there would be about 4.5 trillion that would come into t
